- Agincourt began as a small village centred around the Knox Presbyterian Church. The original frame Knox Church, built in, 1846 was replaced in 1872 with the story-book brick church that still stands today on the the north-west corner of Sheppard and Midland Avenues.
- Agincourt began to boom in the late 1800’s when two railway lines opened stations here. This led to the building of the first Agincourt subdivision in 1913, on the old Patterson farm north of Sheppard Avenue, between Midland Avenue and the Railway tracks. The most significant wave of development in Agincourt took place between 1945 and 1965, when most of the present day neighbourhood was developed.
- Agincourt has one of the largest Asian communities in Toronto. This ethnic mix is visible in the signage of the many shopping malls that proliferate in the neighbourhood.
- The East Indian and Indo Pakistani community are also well established in Agincourt. The Woodside Cinemas, located at the Woodside Square Mall on McCowan Road, includes three theatres that screen East Indian, Indo-Pakistani and Chinese films, occasionally with English subtitles.
- Agincourt is filled with Asian shopping malls and shopping plazas, particularly along Sheppard Avenue and on McCowan Road north of Finch Avenue. The mix of shopping in these plazas includes Asian supermarkets, fruit stores, seafood restaurants, herbal stores, vegetarian shops, beauty salons, banks and bakeries
- The largest shopping mall in this neighbourhood is the Agincourt Mall on Sheppard Avenue. This mall is anchored by both a Wal-Mart department store and a Loblaws supermarket, and features mostly national retailers and chain stores.
- The Agincourt Community Centre, located at 31 Glen Watford Drive, offers indoor swimming programs, fitness classes and recreational skating. The Agincourt Lawn Bowling Club operates out of the park adjacent to the community centre
- Brimley Woods Park, located just north of Finch Avenue, is renowned for its brilliant display of trillium flowers that bloom in early May. This park features a short wood chip nature trail underneath a tall canopy of maple trees. A chorus of bird calls serenades hikers through this beautiful trail.
- Agincourt has its own Go Transit station on the north side of Sheppard Avenue, just east of Kennedy Road. This station provides commuters with morning train service to Union Station in downtown Toronto. This train returns to Agincourt in the late afternoon from Union Station.
- Toronto Transit bus lines on Finch and Sheppard Avenues connect passengers to the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line. Bus services on Kennedy, Brimley, McCowan, Bellamy and Markham Roads, as well as Midland Avenue link passengers to stations on the Bloor-Danforth subway line.
